You will find that the interpretation of your chart is written in simple language, uncluttered by astrological jargon. If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then you exhibit these opposite qualities at different times in your life. For example, a statement that you are highly sociable and gregarious and a statement that you prefer solitude seemingly contradict each other; this means that you vacillate, and need both sociability and solitude at different times.
The astrological factor that the interpretation is based on is also given. The astrological factor is given for the benefit of astrologers and students of astrology. If you are not a student of astrology, then obviously the factor will not be meaningful to you, and you can ignore it.
If you find this interpretation of your birth chart interesting and informative, you might want to discuss your birth chart with a professional astrologer to learn more about the astrological influences on your life.

Chapter 1: General Characteristics
Your fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Your "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciously develop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overvalue the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following chapters.
You value order and security in your life and prefer dealing with known quantities, following clearly defined guidelines in order to achieve your aims. Reason rather than emotion rules you, and you think in clear, practical, no-nonsense terms. You are uncomfortable with ambiguity, emotional impulsiveness or extremism, and things which cannot be explained in rational terms. Even spiritual or mystical realms, if you have any interest in such things at all, must have either some scientific basis or be proven to you through your own experience and practice.
You think a situation through thoroughly before deciding upon a course of action, assessing and analyzing the matter carefully, and can be relied upon to come to a fair, reasonable, and sensible solution to whatever confronts you.
You are able to handle practical matters very efficiently, using both deductive reasoning ability and manual skill. However, it is easy for you to become overly "adult" and to lose touch with the spontaneous, playful, vibrant, and childlike side of yourself. You can become too organized and controlled, not allowing your emotions or creative, playful impulses full expression, and a certain dryness or emptiness will result. You need to learn to appreciate a certain degree of "creative chaos"!
As we shall see in the next chapter, you express yourself in an energetic manner, which enables you to put your practical ideas into action.

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
The following is a description of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the way you come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read this chapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shine through and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at a more than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, your role in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring new territory, and are not happy confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for something greater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreams and visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You love to have a goal, something to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on to something else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is what makes life interesting for you. You have great faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and failure.
Freedom-loving and independent, you cannot tolerate being caged for very long, and friends and loved ones must respect your need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments and responsibilities often weigh heavily upon you and you may resist "growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.
You are friendly and outgoing and have a great sense of fun and playfulness. You are also philosophically minded and often quite outspoken about your convictions and beliefs. Sometimes you get carried away with your enthusiasm of the moment and you tend to exaggerate. You are often a big talker, a big maker of promises, and you are usually pretty convincing. You do everything in a big way, a generous way. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike stinginess, littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large. You are able to perceive the big picture, general patterns and principles, and are well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Other people see you as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable. You may also be seen as a wise person since you do not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and are able to communicate a larger way of looking at situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person who believes in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and you inspire and encourage others to keep looking forward.
There is an intense and somewhat secretive or guarded quality about you which may make people around you distinctly uncomfortable. They may feel you are constantly scanning their inner motives, and you probably are. You see through anything phony, any false pretense -- and you may or may not be above using others' Achilles' heels (which you perceive so clearly) against them. At times though, you may be too suspicious and assign negative intentions to innocent people. Avoid looking always on the dark side.
To others, you appear capable, mature, and down to earth. Even when you were young, there was a certain practicality and responsibleness about you that inspired people to rely on you. You keep your cool in most situations.
It could be hard for you to hold your ground and you may be taken advantage of easily. You display little strength or force to others and may be quick to resign, despite having many longings, hopes, and wishes for the future.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Your optimism and enthusiasm (mentioned in the previous chapter), is balanced by an innate objectivity, detachment, and pragmatic realism that usually keeps your idealistic ventures on a sound course. Though you appear confident and positive, you are often quite skeptical and much more careful than you seem. And while it's true that you like to play, you are also serious about your work and commitments.
Serious, disciplined, and quietly ambitious, you are driven to prove yourself and to achieve material accomplishments and success. Your work, your position in the world, and your contributions to society are very important to you. You will persevere through enormous hardship and frustration in order to reach a goal you have set for yourself, and you often sacrifice much in the area of personal relationships and home life in order to do so.
You have a thoughtful, quiet, and self-contained disposition and do not readily show your inner feelings and needs. You seem to be always in control, capable, efficient, and strong. You are often the person in the family or group who is given more responsibility (and more work) than the others. You are highly conscientious and even as a child you possessed great maturity, soberness, and worldly wisdom.
You are basically a pragmatic realist, and though you may have all sorts of dreams, ideals and colorful theories, you feel that the ultimate test of a concept is its practical usefulness. You have an innate shrewdness and business sense, and there is a bit of the cynic in you as well.
You are clear-headed, detached and objective, and are not swayed by emotional dramatics. Often you are authoritarian -strictly fair, but without mercy. You have a great respect for tradition and even if you do not agree with certain laws, you will abide by them or work to change them, but never flagrantly disregard them. Careful and conservative, you play by the rules.
You are subtle, understated, quiet, deep, not easy to know intimately, and never superficial. You are a modest person and sometimes overly self-critical. Giving yourself (and others) permission to feel, to play, to be spontaneous and silly, and to be weak and vulnerable sometimes, isn't easy for you.
Your strong points are your depth and thoroughness, patience, tenacity, and faithfulness. Your faults are a tendency to be rigid and inflexible, and too serious.
You have a clear sense of yourself and therefore convey a strong impression to others of who you are and what you want. Assertive and self-motivated, you can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but you compete and often clash with other strong individuals. You feel a need to be in control of your own life and you can be too self-involved, too immersed in your own interests, and oblivious to others at times.
You have a pleasant and dreamy disposition with considerable romantic imagination. You have a strong longing for love, but do not see others very clearly and may experience many disappointments in your emotional relationships.
You may lack direction and drive and tend to compare yourself unfavorably to others. You alternate between caution and unrealistic expectations and let others expect too much of you. But you plod forward steadily, reaching success later in life.
You tend to be in a constant state of tension and seem to look for avenues to test your strength. You use all the energy at your disposal in order to succeed. Somewhat rebellious and inflexible, you fight any opposition or resistance you meet.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
Clear, objective, and realistic, you are unimpressed by exaggerated claims or promises. You insist upon being shown facts to back up any statement you hear, and your natural skepticism often borders on cynicism. You approach problems clearly and rationally and maintain your poise and objectivity even in the midst of critical situations. Anyone seeking your advice is certain to get an unemotional and unbiased assessment of their situation, and you therefore make a good arbitrator or judge. You are thorough, conscientious, and disciplined in your thinking, and have an aptitude for business, organization, and administration. You are also a good strategist, and will plan and patiently follow a realistic course which will lead to your eventual success. Serious-minded and studious, you enjoy quiet time alone for thinking or reading.
Your mental skills and intelligence are directed toward practical matters, and you are interested in the tangible effects of any abstract idea or concept. You are very interested in finance, economics, and moneymaking strategies.
Often your emotions and your logic are out of sync with one another. What you feel or subconsciously want or believe is quite different from your conscious thoughts. Thus you may have trouble getting clear about a given situation or making up your mind. You function best when you take time to reflect, brood and incubate your ideas and decisions, utilizing your intuition and emotions as well as your reasoning. If you study your dreams and their messages. you'll be surprised to discover how often your true feelings about someone or something are significantly different from your conscious stance.
Putting your feelings into words doesn't come very easily to you, and you may feel awkward trying to articulate and communicate on subjects other than the purely factual or intellectual. However, finding an outlet through writing or telling your feelings would be very gratifying for you.
Imaginative, intuitive, and nonlinear in your thinking, you have a gift for writing poetry, fiction, or fantasy. You also have a natural openness to the spiritual, intangible side of life and could write or speak on these subjects. An innate clairvoyant tendency could also be developed quite easily by you.
Your mind is deep and penetrating and you are interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper aspects of the human psyche. You possess an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. You are also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
You do not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and you are often unaware of your own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder you and make you very uncomfortable. You would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but you tend to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe your own or others' inner depths.
You avoid heavy, demanding emotional involvement and are wary of making personal commitments.
You need plenty of mental stimulation and you feel close to people with whom you can share thoughts and mental interests. Conversation is very important to you. The strong, silent type of partner is not for you.
You depend a great deal upon other people for emotional support and you have a large "family" of friends that care about you and treat you as kin. The women in your life are particularly important to you, and your relationship with them powerfully influences your sense of security and happiness. You may be overly dependent and unsure of yourself without a close partner.
You feel that little, daily acts of caring and thoughtfulness are essential to the happiness and success of a relationship and you know how to make others feel accepted, loved, and cherished. You enjoy good relationships with women.
You are assertive and confront difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of way. You cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and you can be rather brusque with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and DO something about it" might be your motto.
You crave excitement, change, and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous, and enthusiastic about anything new, you may be perceived by others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for you to make or keep commitments, since you don't know how you will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very important to you. Your domestic life can be very unstable -but you like it that way.
Although you were portrayed above as being assertive and combative, you have a diametrically opposed tendency as well: The urge to escape all contention and ugliness. This may mellow your fiery reactions somewhat, or you may seesaw between the two. Your softer side is described in the following paragraphs.
Highly sensitive and rather easily taken in, you need to beware of deceiving yourself and allowing others to take advantage of your impressionability or gentleness. Daydreaming, fantasizing, or other forms of imaginative, escapist behavior (such as watching television excessively or living your life through romance novels) could be something of an addiction for you. You tend to confuse images with reality and need to learn to be more circumspect and discriminating. Disappointments through women and in close relationships may occur if you do not.
You have intense desires and feelings and your personal relationships are deeply emotional, passionate, and often stormy and painful as well. There are powerful magnetic ties between yourself and those you care about, and you could become emotionally obsessed by another person. Your feelings can become so urgent and compelling that you do things that are not rational. You undergo periodic emotional upheavals and purging, when you must break all ties, release the past and begin anew.
You have an affectionate, warm-hearted, congenial and fun loving nature, and your emotional impulses are quite strong. Forming relationships with others is important to you and you may have an early desire for marriage.
Your emotional flow seems to be blocked in some way and you may feel inhibited when you are with others. You are likely to have a certain fear of crowds and may have a tendency to be agoraphobic.
You are open and unconventional in your attitude towards love, romance, and sex. You enjoy socializing, bringing people together, and having many friends of both sexes. You value friendship very highly and are, in fact, more comfortable being a friend than a lover. You desire an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with your love partner, but deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to you. The role of "husband" or "wife" in the traditional sense doesn't appeal to you, and you abhor jealousy and possessiveness since you feel that no person truly "belongs" to another. You appreciate a love partner who will allow you plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally demanding.
For you, caring and affection must be expressed tangibly, and you love giving and receiving gifts. You value luxury, comfort, and elegance very highly and appreciate beautiful things. You can be self-indulgent and extravagant. Being overly possessive of people you love and of your belongings is something you need to beware of.
You are warmly romantic and openly express your appreciation and love of the opposite sex, though rarely in a crude or insensitive manner. You enjoy playing matchmaker and bringing people together romantically. Fulfillment and harmony in love is likely for you because you know what you want and need in a romantic sense and express those desires honestly.
You have a very romantic, idealistic vision of love and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh and blood human being ever quite lives up to your dream image of the Perfect Love. Though you frequently fantasize about love and romance, you may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. You can be evasive and dishonest with yourself and others, when it comes to love. Some of your love yearnings may be expressed through art, music, or an involvement with mysticism.
You are prone to get involved in highly intense, even obsessive relationships -- "fatal attractions", so to speak. At its darkest, this urge for intensity in the personal arena may compel you to choose friends or mates who are rather dangerous or dishonorable characters with a penchant for manipulating and inflicting pain on their "loved ones". On the other hand, you may be tempted to use your own sexuality or charm to play the same sort of game, to use love or friendship as a bargaining chip or to gain power over others. Even if your intentions are basically good, you will find that your closest relationships are rather tumultuous affairs in which some rather unlovely aspects of yourself (such as jealousy, the desire to dominate or to be a victim, etc.) keep showing their faces. These are qualities that need to be understood and ultimately outgrown.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are extremely strong-willed and you pursue your goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. You are capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and you are very difficult to influence or sway once your mind is made up. When you want something, you can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. You are very instinctive and do not always consciously know why you feel as strongly and deeply as you do.
You also tend to be secretive and unwilling to reveal your aims and intentions, and the intensity of your will and desire may not be apparent to others at first. However, you are very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. You often manipulate or force your will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. You are not interested in confrontation but are a formidable foe if you meet opposition or aggression from another. You are courageous and have a rather primitive, raw side as well.
You are likely to be known for your drive, energy, ambition, and competitive spirit. A successful career based on your ability to take initiative, be a leader, or excel in physical strength and prowess is likely. You most definitely want to be a winner and will work hard to achieve that.
You are inclined to rely on other people and expect too much from them, leaving you with a feeling of being short changed frequently. Always looking for an easy way out, you tend to sit back hoping for your ship to come in.
You are very inspirational, but may lack the energy to put your ideas into action. You are inclined to feel tired a lot and may not have enough push to follow through. You can be rebellious at times, but you know your limits.
You have noble aspirations and grand plans for yourself. Combining personal goals with humanitarian concerns, philanthropy, and an interest in social betterment, you are apt to be quite successful and influential in your community. You are suited to large, expansive enterprises and dealing with wealth.
Your aspirations in life are apt to be quite unusual, extraordinary, or ahead of their time. You're a nonconformist, insistent on doing things your own way, and you will follow a zigzag course to the fulfillment of your ambitions.
Rebelling against authority seems to be one aspect of your life's plan. You simply cannot force yourself into a pre-cast mold of any kind.
You really want to make your mark on the world in some way, to achieve stature and recognition for your contributions, and you're not willing to take a back seat -- at least not for very long. In order to achieve your aims, though, you'll have to compromise and "give" more than you may be willing to. Thus, conflicts with others, particularly important men in your life, may arise. To accomplish your goals, you may have to put aside some of your self-centeredness, and learn from these men! However, you may also be required at some point to make a break in order to stand on your own and fulfill your own destiny.
You are inclined to be a bit eccentric, and difficulties with members of your family or friends may cause you to feel depressed and alone frequently. You may be drawn more to older people.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your strengths lie in your ability to cooperate, to be diplomatic, and to know just what behavior is called for in whatever social situation you find yourself. You also possess a strong sense of fairness, the willingness to listen to opposing viewpoints and opinions, and the ability to be (or at least seem to be) impartial and moderate, rather than extreme and one-sided.
You are very open-minded and deeply curious about distant places and ways of thinking and living that are different from your own. The urge to travel widely and to experience as much of the world as possible is very strong in you. The study of philosophy or religion also interests you a great deal. You benefit from your contact with other cultures, and you may be involved in linking those who are far apart geographically or philosophically.
You are very enthusiastic and high-spirited. You inject a positive, optimistic note into any endeavor, and others enjoy your fun-loving and enterprising attitude.
You have a jovial and friendly manner along with a sound emotional and mental disposition. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious and you probably enjoy many happy relationships as well as a happy marriage and family life.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have difficulty asserting your will and desires directly and openly. You also may suppress your anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in yourself are important tasks for you.
Your childhood or your relationship with your parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent you from allowing other people to get close to you in later life. You felt deprived in some manner, whether or not you actually were deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of your needs and feelings may typify your early life, at least as you remember it. Forgiving your parents and/or letting go of any resentments you have about the limitations you experienced early in your life is crucial. Also, you need to build your own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into your home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help you accomplish this.
You have a sense of duty and responsibility, but may find it difficult to make up your mind and come to a decision. Somewhat slow to act, and your need to be fully prepared, inclines you to let good opportunities slip away at times.
You are subject to rash decisions and impulsive actions that may have sudden, unexpected consequences and undesirable results. Not very adaptable, you could have considerable tension with people and are likely to have disputes or even violent fights with others.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are apt to overdo because it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you need to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Seeking interpersonal harmony, cooperation, and togetherness, and desiring to please or appease other people is very natural for you so much so that you accommodate them at your own expense. When you are under stress, you tend to look outside yourself for approval or answers, and you lean on others too much. Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look to yourself for your answers and forge your own path through life is a key factor in development.
You are often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about your intentions or desires, and you can become enmeshed in a swamp of "little white lies" and evasions. Radical honesty with yourself and others is the only way out! This, however, leads you to confront some of your most deeply ingrained fears, such as "what if "they" don't like me?" and "what if I have to go it alone?".
Cultivate your ability to be assertive, to take initiative and act on your own behalf. Directness and self-reliance are keys.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in the way you think, process information, and communicate. In your interactions with neighbors, colleagues, and acquaintances, try to bring out the qualities described above.
The specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
An overreliance on luck or grace, living for tomorrow, gambling, overconfidence, overextending yourself and taking on more than is humanly possible, and/or being dogmatic about your philosophy of life or religious beliefs.
Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive antiauthoritarian attitude, seeking constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and seeking individual freedom at any cost.
You have an inspiring, trustworthy and courteous manner, bringing lots of friends and acquaintances with similar interests into your life. Your parental home probably is very harmonious and you feel strongly connected with your family.
You are gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. You are fond of telling jokes and are likely to entertain everyone. Your meetings with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.
You have the power to influence people to your way of thinking and may forcefully try to obtain the leadership in your community. Others can't help noticing you, and you probably will be the leader in any clubs or associations you may decide to join.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You are unconventional, even iconoclastic, in your attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics. You tend to see traditional religion as restrictive, meaningless ritual with little to offer you, and you're eager to experiment with other, alternative pathways. You have lots of creative, innovative ideas and you often feel that others are unwilling to take risks and venture out of their deeply ingrained perspectives and views.
You are idealistic in your social and political outlook, and your ideals may impel you to join clubs, organizations, communities of like-minded people, or groups that share your vision and your concerns.
You have strong philosophical views and there are times in your life when you passionately crusade for a cause that you deem noble and of utmost importance. Although your intentions are good, you are not as objective as you think you are, and your views are more colored by personal experiences and concerns than you realize. Nevertheless, you can also be instrumental in bringing about positive change if you can avoid being dogmatic. Also, you may radically change or revise your own personal beliefs, even your most cherished convictions, many times during your life.
Although somewhat restless, you have great endurance and work hard toward the achievement of your goals. Attainment of success and recognition could come to you suddenly and sometimes you could change your occupation just as quickly.
You could have a hard time making up your mind and may try many vocations before settling down in one that brings the rewards that you anticipate. Easily disappointed, you tend to give up and withdraw and to escape responsibility.
Because of fluctuating energy, you could find it difficult to maintain your position in life. At times you may want to withdraw from others and prefer solitude. You probably find working together with others not very rewarding.
Because of your emotional need to be in control and dominate others, your relationships, especially with women, may not always be harmonious. You must try to control your compulsive behavior, or you may end up in a relationship with tragic consequences.

Chapter 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.
The first topic is "The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power, and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The second topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The third and last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group", which describes areas in which your age group tends to be innovative, inventive, unusual, and also where it may be unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors described in each of the three sections below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
You are part of a 15 year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to straighten out all the world's evils and create a world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, there is also often a fascination with these very things that are so distasteful, and often a feeling of hopelessness and despair about the world's condition.
These inner, emotional and conflicting qualities are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of your generation. Most people of your age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in manners and appearance. There seems to be no middle ground for your generation. Usually, the rebellious type of behavior comes out during adolescence, and tends to subside thereafter, and your age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Your age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is wrong. There is a strong feeling that you must extinguish evil in the world. Certainly, fostering good works is very commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. Your age group will undergo great transformations in attitudes regarding Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Your generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Your age group is very attracted to the strange, weird, and unusual. The sense of the macabre and bizarre is strong, and this is reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of your age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling suspense are also popular with your age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively high in your age group.
